A comedy-drama series by Tony McNamara based on the life of Catherine the Great, Russia’s last ruling Empress, is called ‘The Great.’ Because of this, the show’s tale is fabricated, even though it’s based on the life of a real person.
The story of Catherine’s stormy marriage to Peter III occupies a substantial section of the show’s plot.
On May 15, 2020, the satirical comedy series premiered on Netflix. Criticism of the show’s two seasons has been good because of the show’s lighthearted approach to historical events and the show’s pace.
It’s no exaggeration to say that Elle Fanning as Catherine the Great and Nicholas Hoult as Peter III of Russia are two of the show’s most important stars.
So, if you’ve just finished the second episode and are itching for more, you’re not alone. Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of what we know regarding a possible third season!
The Great Season 3 Release Date
Hulu has renewed “The Great” for a third season, the company said on Tuesday.
Season 2 of the historical dramedy, which premiered in its entirety on Hulu on Nov. 19, has been renewed.
When Catherine (Elle Fanning) eventually succeeds in overthrowing her husband in season two, she discovers that overthrowing a nation that doesn’t want free is much more difficult. To bring enlightenment to Russia, she’ll have to fight her mother, her court, and even her squad.
The Great Season 3 Plot
Season 2 ends with Peter and Catherine’s tension at an all-time high. After Peter discovers that Catherine knows the details of Joanna’s death, he is certain that she intends to murder him.
We know that Catherine is not alright with any of this, despite her calm demeanor in the face of learning that her husband had sex with her mother, which ended in her mother’s death. At Marial and Maxim’s wedding, many anticipate the royal couple to get into a fight, so they pull their weapons.
Catherine and Peter begin to relax, and things take an unexpected turn. Catherine returns to Peter’s room later that night and repeatedly stabs him in the back. She bursts into tears right afterward, for killing him was the last thing she wanted to do.
Peter, it turns out, was all too familiar with her and had set up a counterpart for him (fortunately, that guy is not dead either). Catherine and Peter embrace one another in the last minutes of the season, and then they turn away from each other.
When Season 2 finishes, there is a good chance that Season 3 will start up where it left off. The death of Joanna and the circumstances surrounding it will continue to put a pall on Catherine and Peter’s marriage for some time to come.
Meanwhile, the Civil War continues to rage within the royal palace. If the program makes a third appearance, we may anticipate solving these issues.
The Great Season 3 Cast And Crew
Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge, Sacha Dhawan, Bayo Gbadamosi, and Belinda Bromilow are among the cast members of this season. There will be ten episodes in Season 3.
The series was developed by Tony McNamara, who also served as executive producer. Besides appearing in the film, Fanning and Hoult are both executive producers.
Executive producers include Marian Macgowan, Mark Winemaker, Brittany Kahan Ward, Doug Mankoff, Andrew Spaulding, Josh Kesselman, Ron West, Matt Shakman, and Thruline’s Josh Kesselman and Ron West. Civic Center Media and MRC Television are behind the show’s creation.
